Are you looking for someone to paint your home or property? And not just anyone, but someone who cares as much as you do about getting the job done exactly how you envision it, within a reasonable amount of time, and in a friendly manner?
Hi, I’m Benjamin Lins, founder of Integrity Paint & General Contracting. I started this company 20 years ago to bring beauty, function, and stability to public and private property. Caring for someone’s property is an extension of caring for them as a person, and that’s a really big deal. Whether you work with me and my team or not, I want you to be well-equipped to make the best decisions when it comes to caring for your property. It’s what any good neighbor would do right?
Below are some key standards to maintain as you execute your next exciting remodel or restoration:
Achieve long-term stability. Ask about each contractor’s process for prep work. In painting, prepping the paint site will make or break the long-term satisfaction you experience. Failure to adequately sand and scrape a surface is a recipe for a repaint job right around the corner.
Confirm with your contractor that their paint jobs, and especially their prep work, have stood and will stand the test of time.
Demand a clean work site. Evaluate the area to be worked on and if there are “at-risk” items or things you are worried about getting damaged, communicate this to any contractors working for you. You deserve to have your property left better than we found it (that’s what you pay us for right?), but sloppy, rushed work is a recipe for accidents and you shouldn’t have to pay the price.
Emphasizing your desire for a clean, accident-free worksite will help keep this top-of-mind for anyone working on your property. I highly suggest insisting on covering all areas you don’t want painted and removing “at-risk” items from the work zone entirely.
Create something beautiful. At the end of the day, you want your property to have a strong visual appeal. You want it to be beautiful, something that brightens your day and has guests ooh and aah at the Sunday afternoon BBQ. Achieving a beautiful paint job isn’t complicated, but you can’t cut corners. Make sure to use primer. And ALWAYS use two coats of paint.
This guarantees the correct thickness recommended by the paint manufacturers for longevity, it enables equal application of paint volume when back rolled, and it ensures a consistent color across all facades. Trust me, don’t cut corners on these steps and you’ll thank me when your paint job remains beautiful for over a decade.
These three standards will keep your projects moving in a positive manner. It’s clearly not an exhaustive list. You should also ask about each company’s liability insurance, check out online reviews to see what their standard quality of work is across the board, and see if there are specific discounts you can qualify for based on when you book with each company. Most painting companies (us included) will offer “rainy day discounts” and “calendar work-around discounts” to thank you for booking us wall-to-wall with quality jobs, keeping our teams engaged and families provided for.
Property care is personal to me. May we all achieve beauty, function, and stability in each of our endeavors.
